Bank Of Thailand Holds Key Rate And Raises 2017 GDP Forecast

Thailand’s central bank kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 1. 5 percent where it’s been since 2015, according to a Bank of Thailand statement

The Monetary Policy Committee resolved unanimously to retain policy interest rate at 1. 5 percent where it’s been since 2015, according to a Bank of Thailand statement on its website on Wednesday

 

Mr Chaturong Chantharang, assistant governor of the Bank of Thailand for monetary police, said that the MPC wanted to continue using lenient monetary policy to boost sustained economic expansion and to keep inflation rate within target.

The Thai government is hoping for a pick up in investment and consumer spending to broaden the expansion in Southeast Asia’s second-largest economy, which remains export-reliant.

According to economic assessments this year and next year, the economy tends to expand at higher rate than previously projected – 3.9 percent instead of 3.8 percent.

The Thai economy as a whole was projected to achieve higher growth than previously assessed on account of continued improvements in merchandise exports and tourism that were driven by a stronger global economic recovery.
